Our mission is to build a network of funding sources and a community of activists who will advance an agenda that embraces a philosophy of Constitutional Limited Government, the Rule of Law, Economic Freedom, and the traditional values that sustain individual initiative, personal autonomy and responsibility.

Our network community is dedicated to replacing current elected liberal central planners who believe in command and control socialism by a few elite technocrats, the few ruling the many, with leaders who support the freedom of the individual, free markets engaged in free trade, and free market solutions to healthcare, retirement, energy and education.

Dear Lowman,

The following is the introduction and three part analysis of the three Republican candidates for Governor 2010 based on my personal observations at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference on March 28, 2009, Harrisburg, Penna. See the video of three gubernatorial candidates headed Keynote Luncheon Speakers. Compare Keynote Speaker Pat Toomey It is worth watching the response to the Specter Question.

Attorney General Tom Corbett, US Representative Jim Gerlach and former US Attorney for Eastern District of Pennsylvania Pat Meehan all presented at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference on Saturday March 28th in Harrisburg and it was recorded by Pennsylvania Cable Network. The following is my report which builds on an impassioned and accurate rant by Michael Collins.

"Canned platitudes, inarticulate, vague, painfully boring, unfocused, evasive are just a few of the polite words that were used to describe the performance of the 3 GOP candidates for Governor: Attorney General Tom Corbett, Congressman Jim Gerlach and former US Attorney Pat Meehan."

The audience was stunned, and disgusted, by the incompetence of the presentations which cemented the conservative reformers' perception that these three phony pretenders are fronting for the Harrisburg Establishment Insider Network of Hacks, County Hacks and Big Government Lobbyists who have led the once-dominant party to near-oblivion during these past 18 years. Canned platitudes do not supplant the need to purge government of pork and overreach.

Conclusion: What We Should Do




Help Wanted: Conservative Conclusion

What is a Conservative Reformer to do?
So what are conservative /reform minded Republican voters to do? They don't have a candidate in this contest. None of the GOP candidates for Governor have the principles or political nerve to challenge the losing Republican Establishment status quo for fear of alienating their base of funders and campaign workers. They refuse to get specific about any of Harrisburg policies, or explain how they will "reform" government and consistently duck tough questions as evident by the Toomey- Specter and Right-to-Work questions they were asked at the PLC.

Former Waste Management "government affairs" representative, and partisan prosecutor Tom Corbett is going to continue to lead a partisan driven Bonusgate investigation, Earmarking Jim Gerlach will try to run as "a fiscal conservative" even when his record proves otherwise and as he continues to vote like a liberal Democrat and Pat Meehan is going to continue to stay vapid and vague, raise money from lawyers and assemble a campaign team of Santorum and Specter alumni even as liberal Philadelphia Inquirer continues their "hit" series on Tom Corbett and here.

If there ever is a void to be filled by a conservative candidate, now would be the time. With only pseudo-conservatives from which to choose, the entry of a TRUE "no squish" conservative would clearly shake up this race, galvanize all the conservative activists and most importantly give the Republican voters a real choice. If nobody steps forward, then the 8 year cycle of the governor's mansion changing hands likely will come to an end.
The door is open. The question is whether or not somebody will walk through it. The conservative reform base will be there.
